- The troubled Open Payments website is encountering a bit more turbulence. The CMS announced last week that it plans upcoming outages for the site and that downtime would be used for “scheduled maintenance upgrades.” As a result, the review-and-dispute process for doctor data displayed on the site will be extended until Sept. 10, the agency said. That delay will push the corrections period to Sept. 25. The agency still says that the data will be released to the public Sept. 30. The outages are scheduled on Aug. 30 between 1 and 11 a.m. ET and on Sept. 5 for an as-yet-undisclosed duration.
